of Mountain Social-Ecological Systems in 2020
|Vision: By 2020 we wish to see a coordinated set of teams of researchers, covering the range of pertinent disciplines,
working collaboratively at a distributed network of field stations that represent the diversity of mountain regions around the world. Their common goal is to develop an understanding of the current structure and function of human and natural systems, as well as their longer-term evolution, in mountain landscapes at a detail sufficient to support forecasts of probable outcomes that can inform public and private decision-making.
A core group of researchers from around the world launched the Global Network Of Mountain Observatories (GNOMO) at the conclusion of a workshop hosted by the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL) in Gothic, Colorado, USA.
Mountain researchers are, like the mountains themselves, scientifically, culturally and generationally diverse. Through its systemic approach the MRI seeks to provide a framework within which these different perspec:ves all find their place and which leads to a more inclusive and robust understanding of mountain social-‐ecological systems.
